Hello Nino,

Thank you for bringing this to us. We experienced this in the past for users who either don't have WSS allowed, or are using an older version of Chrome (i.e 77).

Can you first check that you have allowed WebSockets, and if that's not the case, confirm if your browser is on the latest version? 

Thank you for your help.



Hi Shannon,


websockets are allowed and i am running the latest version of chrome (Version 78.0.3904.108 (Official Build) (64-bit)). The issue persists on Safari also.




Hi Shannon,



Websockets work fine...I am running the latest Chrome browser (Version 78.0.3904.108 (Official Build) (64-bit))


The issue happens in Safari also and firefox.

Hi Nino,

Thank you for confirming. 

Are you testing this from the same internet location? Can you test from different computers and networks and see if you have the issue?

You can also try with Incognito or Private Browsing mode on your browser, and disable any browser add-ons. If that doesn't work, can you clear your browser cache and see if you have the same issue?



Hi its the same in incognito, from home and also from our other offices. Also tried on 2 different computers.



This seems only to be pages with the new editor can i just switch to the old one as any pages that use that work fine.

Hi Nino,

Thank you for confirming that. It's no longer possible to switch to the old editor. At this point, I would recommend that you raise this with the Cloud Support Team if you are able. We will be better able to troubleshoot this further with you there. 

If you are not able, can you please let me know your timezone and working hours so I can log it with the proper region? 



Hi I am in the UK

I raised a ticket with support thanks!
